“This is one of the best main events since the inception of Broadway Boxing three years ago,” said DBE president Lou DiBella. “It’s a superb action fight with much on the line for both fighters.”
Codrington (15-1, 11 KO’s), fighting out of Laurelton, NY, by way of Bridgeport, CT, faces a stiff challenge from the ring veteran Sheika (26-8, 17 KO’s) of Patterson in the super middleweight battle with a local flavor pitting New York against New Jersey.
The co-feature marks the return of fan favorite Edgar “El Chamaco” Santana (21-2, 13 KO’s) of Spanish Harlem against another local product, Harrison Cuello (12-5, 9 KO’s), of New York City, in a junior welterweight 10-round affair.
Santana, the Puerto Rican standout who has become a fixture on Broadway Boxing, has reeled off 16 consecutive victories, including 14 in a row in New York.
Broadway Boxing is sponsored by HBO Sports, and Gallagher’s Steak House.
The excitement of Broadway Boxing’s fights and the electricity of the crowds at the Manhattan Center have drawn the likes of celebrities and athletes such as Jay Z, Hilary Swank, Rosario Dawson, Fat Joe, Camron, Lennox Lewis, Jermain Taylor, Ricky Hatton, Tiki Barber and Tracy McGrady to name a few.
